All of the children enrolled in IGO’s early childhood educational program come from extremely impoverished areas where it’s very difficult to find work. As a result, their mothers are usually beggars on the streets (many of whom are homeless) or work as a daily laborer earning less than .50 cents per day. Unable to afford childcare, they search for work carrying children on their backs or by their sides. This makes it even more difficult to find work, which is why they often resort to begging on the streets or doing whatever necessary to survive. These circumstances place innocent little children in danger and often lead to their unfortunate demise.
Early Childhood Education (ECE)
Currently, over 3 million children under the age of 5 die every year due to extreme hunger. That's over 8000 little children who suffer and die needlessly every single day.
Now that the children receive breakfast, lunch and a snack they attend school every single day and they are educated and nurtured in a loving environment.
The Institute for Global Outreach (IGO) “Giving Chances To Those Who Need Them Most”
IGO's education and nutritional program provides desperate preschool aged children 2 meals per day in a safe and nurturing environment. Although still living in extreme poverty, preschoolers are healthy, happy and full of energy. This basic provision of food and safety for the children has a ripple effect, benefiting their family and community as well.
Starting with 54 children
We now have over 100 in the program!
With their children safe, mothers can now focus on earning income to help support the family.
Starting with only 30 sponsored children a few years ago, the Institute for Global Outreach now supports over 700. This short video highlights our accomplishments over a 6 year span. Each and every person you see in this depiction is an actual recipient in one of our four programs.
